Join 20 Digital Day Camp teens and their mentors for a party celebrating 3-weeks spent exploring creative strategies for mapping the unknown.

During Digital Day Camp 2011, 20 NYC teens will spend 3-weeks working under the guidance of a team of creative mentors to produce a series of deep, media-rich stories about our NYC neighborhoods. Their stories will become part of a web-based, interactive map that could include photographs, drawings, videos, music, games, words, infographics, etc—we are limited only by our imagination. Final projects will be presented at a public event organized and promoted by Eyebeam.
Application period has passed. Accepted students will be notified on Thursday, June 16
